Check Out my Entries for the B&H Wilderness Photo Contest!

B&H Photo (I really should own stock in that company, as much money as I send them) is hosting a Wilderness Photo Competition – and the grand prize(s) are safari trips to Namibia and Botswana.  Yes, I’m sending mainly wildlife photos from Namibia – the irony is not lost on me.  It wouldn’t do me much good – the flight is from the US to Namibia, but I’d make it work I suppose.  I’m after the runner-up prizes – $500 gift cards to B&H photo!

The contest allows you to submit one photo each in nine different categories – I went for 8 of them (not the culture/wilderness/people), although the pink goat (photographed in India) I sent for “animals in zoos and captivity” is a stretch.  After you’ve lived in a place like Namibia, zoos become a bit hard to handle.

After submitting my entries I thought I’d take a look at some of the others (there’s a “peoples’ choice” award) and discovered there are twenty-two THOUSAND entries in the contest!  If you were thinking this is an easy trip to Africa, well….check out some of the other entries.  Amazing photos.  Can you imagine having to judge those? Oh, and FYI, the submission deadline is extended thru February, so feel free to enter the contest yourself!

Before I post my own entries, I’ll mention that if any of them happen to impress you, feel free to hop on over to their website and throw a “peoples’ choice” vote my way if you like.  My entries in the contest are linked here.  You can vote for ONE photo.  Per email address, that is (hint, hint).  Here are the best photos I could come up with from my own personal stash. From the EXACTLY 2000 photos I have uploaded to Flickr this very moment.
